Water leaking from the soap dispenser during rinse and spin cycle

I have a whirlpool duet sport washer. It works great on washing, but as soon as it starts to rinse and spin water just gushes out of the soap dispenser. I have no idea why this is happening. Can anyone help?? Any response is much appreciated!

    I figured out the problem!! :) I used too much soap. What I did to fix the problem was run the washer empty using zero soap on HOT. It cleared the clogged soap right out and now it runs PERFECT!!!!

Use liquid instead of powder and always use HE detergent

    I'm having the same problem and my washer was purchased in August of 2010 (NOT happy!). I only use HE detergent and always use at least half the recommended "serving" It only leaks on rinse not on fill. I've checked all the holes I can see from the drain in the door, to the drain from the dispenser to the basin of the washer. Where else can I check for clogging? Could one of the jets that shoots into the soap dispenser be "off" and shooting elsewhere?

    For the new problem if you have the new 9x50 series there is a issue with the dispenser that was corrected with a new version of the dispenser housing. This dispenser is different from the sport models. Sports don't have this design problem.

Water leaking from detergent drawer


The first thing to do is take note of what the washer is doing when water leaks out in order to help pinpoint the cause. Does it only leak when filling? Is it leaking during wash or rinses? Or is it leaking only when it goes into spin?

Only leaks when filling

  • Water pressure that's too strong. Some dispensers can't cope with high water pressure. Make sure the washer is level as one leaning forward can leak if combined with high water pressure. Try turning the tap on the washer down. Only suspect this if you know the water pressure is high and it looks like it's gushing in quite fast on fill
  • If there is an optional detergent flap fitted in the drawer for holding liquid detergent make sure it is removed or drawn into the up position if using powder otherwise it prevents detergent running down into the drum
  • A build up of grease and slime in the nozzles at the top of the dispenser where the water flows in causing water to spray at the front and run out when filling. Check this article -black jelly-like substance in soap dispenser and on soap drawer (In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.)
  • A build up of undissolved detergent in the base of the soap dispenser under the drawer (depending on the design). Remove the soap drawer and check the bottom of the soap dispenser for a build up of detergent that could allow water to run over the lip of the dispenser
  • Blocked dispenser hose: Some washing machines can flood water out of the soap dispenser if the hose leading out of the dispenser into the tub gets blocked. Blockages can be something put into the drawer by a child or a chunk of undissolved detergent tablet. Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and it wasn't wide enough. Undissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor water pressure can block this hose solid causing water to back up. Unplug machine, remove lid and feel this hose carefully for obstructions.
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts to fill and never stops it will flood out of the drawer eventually - Washing machine overfills
Leaks out of drawer during the wash or rinse cycle
  • Too many suds? If you can see the door glass is white with foam up to the top it could be foaming out of the dispenser. Too much foam in the washing machine
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts washing but the water doesn't stop coming in it will eventually fill the drum so much it will start to pour out of the soap drawer and other places. If this is the fault you should be able to see the drum is so full of water it's making a different sound, maybe labouring under the load, and the door glass full to the top with water. You should also hear that water is still running into the machine and be able to detect it by opening the drawer. However, in most cases an over filling washing machine should trigger an error code long before it gets to this stage but if you suspect overfilling check this page - Washing machine overfills
  • Surging: There are (often intermittent) faults that can cause the motor to spin out of control on wash or rinses. Instead of turning slowly the fault causes the motor to surge into spin instead which throws the laundry and all the water about violently. Water can then be forced out of the soap dispenser drawer. This fault should be relatively rare these days but if you observe this behaviour call an engineer to diagnose the cause.
Leaks from drawer only when spinning
  • If it only comes out on spin it can be caused by a partial blockage preventing the water being pumped out fast enough resulting in excess water being thrown around on spin and backing up into the dispenser. This fault is similar to the surging fault described in the last list but different in that the problem only occurs when it's on a proper spin cycle and much of the water has been pumped away. Troubleshooting this fault is all about finding out why it isn't emptying the water properly which is usually due to a partial blockage. Follow the same troubleshooting as described for a washer not pumping any water out at all - Washing machine won't empty water
  • If water is being forced out of the drawer when the washer is spinning but it is on wash or rinse and shouldn't be spinning follow the procedure for surging in the previous section above

Just bought a front load whirlpool wash machine. when i turn it on it locks door then unlocks door, it does this 2 to 3 times then the washer fills with some water only spins about 3 times then it waits...


This washer will stop and start a number of times during fill as it is sensing how much water it needs. Also you must hook both water line up and have both on. Also you must use HE soap and very little of it.

During the rinse cycle I see a trickle of water running down on the left side of the machine. The leak does not happen on every load. Any thoughts on the cause? Do I need a new front gasket? Thanks


The left hand side is where the soap dispenser sits

Remove the drawer clean out the pipes leading to the drum and give it another test

If it still leaks then remove the top and run a cycle , watch the hoses for splits.

Be careful and cover the programmer area with newspaper before you apply power

Washer goes through 40 min. cycleand stays on 1 min. spinning and rinsing for another 30 min


your using way to much soap
during that whole 1 minute cycle it is detecting suds and trying to rinse the cloths further
cut way down on the soap here
you should be using 1 tablspoon per load
wash one load without anyy soap at all
this should help to reduce your suds lock
